say cheese!

Here is the first of the cards I used for my design team application. I'm a bit of a shutterbug myself, so I just love Saycheesabella! She was colored in using a variety of Copic and Prismacolor markers* (I only have a few of each, so I use them interchangeably depending on the color I'm looking for). You can't really tell from the photo, but after I finished coloring in the camera, I went back over it with the clear Sakura Gelly Roll pen to give it a metallic sparkle. The edges of the designer papers (Making Memories) were ran over a SU Chocolate Chip ink pad to give them the feel of an old photo. The finishing touch, the pretty stitched chocolate ribbon, was a Dollar Tree find.

*These are a new purchase for me, and I am still learning how to use them properly. If this applies to you as well, check out i like markers, a very useful blog by Marianne Walker. Marianne is a product specialist for Copic Markers, and has wonderful tutorials on her blog with lots and lots of photos. But be warned! Once you see all of the amazing things Marianne does with her Copics, you are going to want to own them! I know I do!

Stay tuned for the remaining 2 projects from my application...
